      Pros

      Great company which really, really tries hard to do well for its employees. Company invests in its employees and recognizes hard work.

      Cons

      Only con is that the internal culture is unique and based on the history of the company and the industry. Nothing wrong with it, but it may not be for everyone.

      Poor upper management

      Dec 25, 2018 - HVAC Service Tech in Casper, WY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      A lot of the pros that Long had when they were a small company have dissipated.

      Cons

      Long does not appreciate a employee who has busted there butt for them, this can be seen by the high turnover of long term employees. The pay is horrible compared to other companies the size of Long, even if you have the experience. Be aware of the promises LONG makes, they DO NOT KEEP THEM. Long has been buying lots of companies and putting themselves in a bad financial situation. Robbing Peter to pay Paul, and then penalizing the employees that have worked hard, only to hear them say they are cutting back on new vehicles or a work boot allowance.

      WORKING AT LONG BUILDING TECHNOLOGIES

      Jan 7, 2015 -

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There are new challenges everyday, with the ever changing hvac controls industry. Whether youre in the control installation, programming, or the service department, you have no option other than to stay current on technology. Long provides training, and support to its employees to help them maintain the proper level of competency to work on the new complex systems as well as the antiquated systems. There is a wealth of information from our employees, as well as from our suppliers to answer any and all questions that may arise, so we can complete our tasks with pride and knowledge. It seems you can and will learn something new each day.

      Cons

      The biggest con working for Long is the weekly travel that takes you away from home. It is usually only 4 days a week, so its not as bad as some other jobs with travel involved, but it can be an issue for a family. Depending on which business group you work for, promotions can be hard to come by. Everyone has to wear multiple hats, so finding a higher role level can sometimes mean its just you working at a higher level, more responsibilities, same job.

      Lots of Latitude, could use more top down (and bottom up) communication

      Pros

      LONG provides a great working environment - lots of space and opportunity to hone personal skills and grow individually. Employees are put first and kept well care of, however....

      Cons

      top down communication from management can be inconsistent and infrequent. Many corporate and divisional initiatives often seem to fall by the way side for "flavor of the month" type business challenges. management responsibilities are unclear but seem to be occasionally burdensome and can stymie progress on these initiatives. interdepartmental communication could use help, it seems that the different business division managers can often be at odds and this tension can prevent progress of their employees intermingling and working together as one
